Thanks for letting us know.

I'm sorry I don't know how that file is maintained or updated. The key
is in the keyring used by the GNU ftp upload machinery (or at least, it
was at the time of upload).

I usually use the key servers which are default in gpg. Apparently they
don't communicate with the mit server.

Key is now uploaded to the mit server (any hints on how to update
gnu-keyring.gpg?). I hope that solves the problem (and don't hesitate to
report any further problems, we really want this to work). The key was
signed by a bunch of people at last fosdem. (Probably not too hard for a
bad guy turn up there under my name, but I guess these key signing
parties still are a lot better than nothing).

We should probably also keep a copy of the key linked somewhere from the
GMP download webpage. Or at least link to a keyserver that is expected
to have the key, e.g.,

/Niels Möller

headers etc.
